spinning1The Spinning Study Group will meet on Wednesday, January 25, 2017, at approximately 12 pm after the General Meeting at St. Philips Episcopal Church.

We will be continuing our yearlong study of fiber blends. This time Heather will help us take a look at fiber blends using manufactured fibers.  We’ll compare regenerated natural fibers from wood pulp, soy, milk protein, seaweed and rose plants.  We will examine the differences between bast, viscose and carbonized bamboo fibers.   We’ll also sample several forms of nylon and even take a look at preparations made from stainless steel.

Bring your handcards and a spinning wheel and/or spindle to try your own fiber sample blends using manufactured fibers.

 All are welcome. Coordinator: Jill at jillholbrook@earthlink.net
